[mod_python] using mod python without calling the function

if using this config:
  SetHandler mod_python
 PythonHandler mod_python.publisher
        PythonDebug On

do i always need to call the function in the URL?

for example, testscript.py has a function called "writename".
must i call testscript.py using
http://localhost/pycgi/testscript.py/writename or could i add something to
the contents of the file like you can when testing a script from command
line like this:

if __name__=="__main__":

basically, i am trying to avoid putting the function name into the URL.

also, i noticed that the newest version of mod_python *ONLY* supports python
2.5.0. i had errors with 2.5.2 and would not install with python 2.6.
